Another Week Gone.

Hello Peeps.
Another week has flown by.
I'm not sure where time goes.

The first thing to show you are the squares that I've received in the Friendship Blanket Swap I'm taking in part in on the Phoenix Forum. I've decided that I'm going for a blue blanket and these lovely squares arrived this week.
We're making 2 squares a month for a specific person. These are the ones I sent, also this week.
With those out of the way I picked up this blue aran yarn. It was given to me in a swap quite some time ago but I really didn't know what to do with it. It's Lorna's Laces Bullfrogs and Butterflies, a wool and mohair mix.
I cast on last night...............
............and finished this afternoon. It probably took 3 hours all in all. The yarn really is lovely and although described as solid you can see it has variations in the blue. DD is modelling it and may be keeping it ~ I'm not sure.
It certainly won't be for me because (as you can see from my pic) I've curly hair and hats and me do not mix (and I don't need them because I'm so well insulated with the hair!)
I have finished another project which has been on the needles for far too long because I decided I didn't like the pattern and oh, it didn't fit me :-( (I'm keeping somebody in suspense over this one) ~ it's blocking right now so no pics at the moment but I will get some on asap.

DS had another lovely day at rugby ~ I'm not sure if the team won or lost but he certainly needed a shower when he got in!
Mr Clicky Needles and me went out on Saturday!
I know this is an unusual occurrence but as the kids are getting bigger we can leave them for a bit and indulge in the company of good friends. We went to a local pub called the Weighbridge Inn where they make a
2 in 1 pie.
On one side you get cauliflower cheese and on the other whatever filling you like. I had beef and mushroom, it's topped off with melt-in-the-mouth pastry which I have no idea how they make but is sheer heaven.
Yummy, yummy, yummy.
I don't quite know how this very small pie can be sooooo filling but it is.

Anyway I need to have a bit of a think about what I'm going to cast on next for the 'big' project, my Flip-Top Gloves being the 'small' thing.

Hope your week is a good one.
Bye for now......Clicky Needles.

P.S. I have just read this post back and found loads of grammatical errors. The fingers aren't typing what the brain says.
Let me apologise I think I've changed them all now.


  1. That pie looks delicious! You can't beat a homemade pie in my humble opinion! I like the cabled square you knitted - fabulous! Have a good week.

  2. Mmm that pie looks delicious!

    The squares you knit and those you received look great, the blanket square swap is such a lovely idea. The hat looks great too.

    Hope you have a lovely week.

  3. The 2 squares you made are magnificent! But for sure I'm loving the hat and the natural variations in the wool. Very pretty and you did that very fast!!

    Hugs from Oregon.. Teresa

  4. Like your two squares you made and the dirty knees made me smile!
    That pie looks delicious, my oh would love that he is a steak and kidney pie fanatic.
    Have a good week.


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
Please leave a comment ~ I do appreciate them.
